Love Whispers

I am joining with Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:


fear-600x600 - Version 2

Love Whispers


Why is it
in this desert land,
where the stillness and silence is tangible,
fear seems to shout so loud,
and I actually take a moment to listen

Why is it
in this wilderness of betrothal,
where You’ve promised to meet me,
that love whispers softly,
and I scarcely bend my ear to hear

Thank You that You see me and know me,
You know my heart after You,
and You set Your love upon me
and call me beautiful

Despite myself and all my ways
You call me Yours, Your beloved one

Could today be the day
that my ears are attune to hear
Your loud love whispering over me

Could today be the day when
I shout back at fear
and tell him where he belongs:
bowing low at Your feet
Just like me

I love You, my G-d
I am Yours and You are mine
